Have you Seen these Netflix August Additions Yet?
Posted in: FEATURE
If too much of Stranger Things this month has you looking for a break, the new additions on Netflix might interest you. Like every month Netflix has released its splendid additions’ roster and a lot of it has to do with music. From musicals to films based on music, if you are craving for some high notes, the streaming site has it covered.
The Get Down
Perhaps one of the most noteworthy additions this month is a musical drama focusing on the rise of hip hop music in the 70s, set in the neighborhood of Bronx. The 12 part musical series has been directed by the eminent director Baz Lurhman, known for his lavish style of film making. It’s also the priciest Netflix Original till date, and we are definitely keeping a watch out for this one!
Do you love animated animals and do you love The Beatles? (Wait, who doesn’t love The Beatles?) Then this show has been tailor made for you! A kids’ series that is equally fun for grownups for featuring covers of popular Beatles numbers by well known artists like Pink!
Moving on to EDM and today’s festival culture that we love to the bits – Netflix Original XOXO seems to get us as it follows the story of six people in one festival night. Festival season is right around the corner, and that makes it more interesting.
I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead
A little more EDM and a little more reality is what this documentary on EDM producer/DJ Steve Aoki is all about. And, it comes from the makers of Jiro Dreams of Sushi, which was one of the most intriguing films around the food business. We can’t wait to watch how they handle the music biz this time!
Our Last Tango
Last but not the least – comes the 2015Argentinine musical “Our Last Tango”. A film about Argentina’s famous tango dancers Maria Nieves Rego and Juan Carlos Copes has a lot of heart and oodles of dancing and tango music. You might want to keep your dancing shoes in handy!
July has been big on Netflix. Not only did we get crazy obsessed with Stranger Things, there were also some big films like The Big Short. Keeping in tune, August seems equally tempting with a number of Oscar contenders also coming this month like Sicario and Brooklyn. Also, worth keeping a lookout for is the new animated version of Little Prince and Funny or Die’s parody film Donald Trump’s The Art of the Deal: The Movie.
